Description

Located opposite to Red Fort in Old Delhi, Jama Masjid has three gates, two minarets - 40 meters in height and four towers. The minarets are made up of red sand stone and white marbles bearing stripes of black colour. With a capacity to accommodate 25000 devotees, it is the largest mosque in India. The main mosque is crowned by three onion shaped domes made of white marble and inlaid with strips of black slate. It has great religious significance as it houses a hair from the beard of Prophet and a chapter of Holy Quran written by the Prophet. Women are not allowed to go up the minaret without a male escort, and during the time of prayer, the minaret is closed.
